After comparing Pitt, Penn State & West Virginia’s offensive numbers, here forthwith are the defensive stats for the local teams:

Yds Yds/G P Yds/G R Yds/G Pts Pts/G
Pitt 3006 334 176.8 157.2 237 26.3
PSU 2712 339 261.9 77.1 170 21.3
WVU 3501 389 212.6 176.4 231 25.7

 

Here are where each team ranks in the country:

Pts/G Yds/G P Yds/G R Yds/G
Pitt t-66 20 8 60
PSU 9 3 23 1
WVU 61 64 46 85

 

A couple quick conclusions:

Pitt’s defense hasn’t played badly but they’re not good enough to make up for the offense’s passing shortcomings.

Penn State’s defense seems to have played quite well but has been let down big time by its offensive troubles.

It’s hard to say whether West Virginia’s defense is any good because they play in the Big XII. They seem to have a defense that’s just good enough to allow them to win with that great offense.
